Huntersville project by local developer, NASCAR driver set for hearing

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — The rezoning process for a marquee mixed-use project proposed in Huntersville is soon expected to take its next critical step.

On May 23, Huntersville’s planning board is scheduled to consider a rezoning request from Treenail Development for an approximately 70-acre site off Hambright Road. The Davidson-based developer is working with NASCAR driver Joey Logano on the project — named Town 1 — and is proposing a range of residential and commercial uses at the site.

The planning board will consider the rezoning after the town’s board of commissioners held its first public hearing on the request earlier this month.

Huntersville’s planning board makes recommendations on rezoning matters to the town’s board of commissioners, which has final authority on such issues. Treenail’s plan for Town 1 calls for 747 multifamily units and 419,300 square feet of commercial space across different areas of the site, plans available in town records show.

A pedestrian village, which Treenail’s Ben Geisler compared to Kingsley Town Center in an interview with the Charlotte Business Journal earlier this year, is part of the proposal as a centerpiece of the commercial element.
